Over on the Vanderbilt side, they’re 8-9 so far. The Commodores have lost their last five straight games, dropping to SMU, Auburn, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Tennessee in that time.
In the loss to the Volunteers, Scotty Pippen Jr. was the lead scorer on 16 points, two rebounds and one assist. Saben Lee was the only other Commodores player in double-figures there with 14 points. 

The Commodores are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six home games and 1-3-1 ATS in the last five after an ATS loss. Vanderbilt is 26-53-1 ATS in their last 80 overall and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss. 

Meanwhile, the Tide are 4-0 ATS in their last four Wednesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last four road games. Alabama is 14-2 ATS in their last 16 overall and the over is 6-2 in their last eight overall. 

Alabama didn’t slow down after their big win over Auburn, and they rolled past Missouri with a convincing 88-74 victory void of hangover. The Tide have now logged at least 83 points in seven of their last eight games. 

As for Vanderbilt, they haven’t shown much life since their game against Auburn, with 55 or fewer points scored in three straight games. I can’t find a lot of reasons not to take Alabama on the cover here.
